The White House released a press release announcing a commitment of $4.3 billion to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria from 2017 – 2019.
The U.S. will match $1 for every $2 pledged by donors through September 2017 in support of the Global Fund’s efforts to fight the infections and deaths due to HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis.
“While we are turning the tide against HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis, too many around the world—especially in areas of conflict—still fall victim to these diseases. Now is the time for the world to accelerate its efforts by making smart investments and evidence-based interventions in the most at-risk places. The United States is proud to do its part. That is what this announcement is all about—making long-term commitments to keep up the fight, because every country has a role to play to help wipe out these diseases once and for all.” Susan Rice
HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis together kill millions of people a year. This pledge should go a long way in mitigating the scourge of these diseases across the world.
